Jack was a first grader. He struggled with writing. A therapist said we should look at Vision Therapy. We hadn’t heard of VT. We were referred to Dr. Gesford. After a consultation with her we were hooked. She put him on a treatment plan, and got him his first pair of glasses. Now Jack is in the 4th grade and he was accepted into Duke TIP. We had options and we chose to drive further to see Dr. Gesford and her staff. Every year for his eye check-up we go back to Complete Eyecare.

We love Dr. Gesford and her staff. Our daughter underwent vision therapy in her office and the results are nothing short of miraculous! We saw results in our daughter's confidence and academic performance very quickly. I researched amd spoke with many other practitioners in the area and would recommend Dr. Gesford without hesitation. She clearly loves what she does and isn't "in it for the money." Best investment we ever made.

Our son had tracking issues we were not aware of until Dr Gesford showed us during appt and we realized with his young age and interest in reading and sports all of this would change if we didn't repair his eye troubles while young . He complained of headaches often and squinted even with glasses . Dr Gesford is very competent and easy to follow whether parent of child . It was s pleasure to work with their clinic.

Dr. Gesford is very personable and professional! She was very thorough and answered all of our questions. She was very kind to our son and treated both of us with respect along with being very attentive to his needs and considerate when he wasn't sure how to answer her questions! We never felt rushed or pushed through our appointments! Friendliest staff that I have encountered in all his years of many specialist!
